Nobody loves natural fibres more than we do. Cotton, silk, cashmere, mohair and of course wool. We love them because they are less damaging to the environment, they are natural sustainable products, their breathable qualities make them soft and airy against the skin. It is therefore unfortunate that moths also like natural fibres and we need to control and eliminate them, preferably in a natural way!!!

Offas Dyke is a 177 mile (285 kilometre) footpath that was officially opened on 10th July 1971. It is one of Britain's National Trails and is also Britain’s longest ancient monument. In the 8th century, King Offa of Mercia erected this wide border rampart to separate Wales and England. Much later, in 1971 Offa's Dyke path was placed alongside it, from Chepstow in South Wales to Prestatyn in the North.
